  • Aged Sumatra Mandh., Pawani

Roast: Dark Review Date: April 1997
Origin: Sumatra Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Spicy, perhaps smoky tones enliven the rich top notes of the aroma and carry into the cup. Surprisingly clear acidity, fine body, long finish, superb aftertaste.

Notes: Spicy, smoky tones enliven the rich top notes of the aroma and carry into the cup. Pawani is the most reliable exporter of high-end Sumatra coffees. Supposedly this coffee has been aged for five to six years. Typically aging mutes acidity and top notes, but not here.

Who Should Drink It: Romantics with acute palates; anyone who wants to know why people carry on about Sumatra. Should stay interesting even with milk and sugar. Try it in the drip brewer, strong.

Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
